Street photography: week twenty-six

“If you’re not sure it’s a picture, shoot it anyway” – Carolyn Drake

These two images, from many others, were occasions when I saw something but was unsure whether to shoot it or not.

I think if one has reached the stage of trying to decide whether to click the shutter, then one has already thought too much about the image and should move on.

“Expose the banalities of the new urban landscape” George Georgiou

“…I am interested in…what the relationship is between a modern planned urban/suburban space and the individual. In other words, planned public space where people can feel comfortable or familiar with but allows people to move through this space without contact, we almost become invisible to each other.” George
